I think it's possible that they're talking about shipments, which would make digital sales a bit lower than 35k, right?

The original Wii game sold 23k first week and 75k lifetime (including 29k from the later released discount version). Quite a nice improvement already for a remaster on a system with much lower install base.

Probably because Nintendo doesn't ever advertise those kind of games. If it's not Mario or Donkey Kong, you'll never see it at E3 and such

I'm talking about Japan, because that's what the sales figure is about.

110.000 in Japan the Wii version, how 100.000 is more. Plus the game got released all over the world for a total of 560.000. Plus, according to MediaCreate it sold 60.000 on PSVita first week and there is not yet data for the second week. And i've been to their site. Yes, in Japanese.

That's the same game as on Wii, right? Then the game really deserves good sales, it is a good game. Whoever doesn't have it, should get one, regardless if it is on Wii or on Vita.

These are good sales considering its a port of a game that is kinda old already and could be bought for cheap on a console that was pretty popular. Im gonna pass myself as i already played it on Wii.
